Carl Honoré is a bestselling author and globetrotting ambassador for the Slow Movement.
After working with street children in Brazil, he covered Europe and South America for the Economist, Observer, Miami Herald, Time and National Post.
His first book, IN PRAISE OF SLOW, examines our compulsion to hurry and chronicles a global trend toward putting on the brakes. The Financial Times said it is ‘to the Slow Movement what Das Kapital is to communism.’ His second book, Under Pressure, was hailed by Time as the ‘gospel of the Slow Parenting movement.’
Translated into more than 30 languages, his books have landed on bestseller lists in many countries. In Praise of Slow was the inaugural choice for the new Huffington Post Book Club. It also featured in a British TV sitcom, Argentina’s version of Big Brother and a Motorola tablet advertisement. Carl’s latest book, The Slow Fix, is published in January 2013.
On top of writing, blogging, tweeting and giving media interviews about the Slow Movement, Carl rushes (slowly, of course) around the world to deliver speeches and workshops. His TED talk has been viewed over 700,000 times.
Carl lives in London with his wife and two children. In his spare time, he plays for the top ball-hockey team in the UK.
